Tasting Notes

**Note: it's always fascinating to see the contrast between these three wines as both Butteaux and Forêts are climats within Montmains; from 40+ year old vines**
The expressive nose offers up notes of petrol, flowers, pear, citrus and wet stone, all of which is trimmed in just enough wood to notice. There is excellent volume to the impressively rich and powerful medium weight plus flavors that brim with dry extract on the focused, mouth coating and wonderfully persistent finish. 2012 is a robust vintage for this excellent wine that should repay up to a decade of bottle age.
